sides, chuck schumer, dick durbin, john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, you game it a lot of folks whose names you'll recognize at this announcement. this plan, we're told would provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens already here in america. and our chief correspondent campaign carl cameron live from capitol hill. >> comprehensive immigration reform has basically been stalled by gridlock for almost a decade. republican and democrats have been going forward. tomorrow the president will announce some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the ill
stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> ifill: democrat dick durbin of illinois accused republicans of applying a double standard. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed. and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on: iraqi weapons of mass destruction. we were told by every level of government here there were iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war, the invasion of the united states. we are still searching for those weapons. they didn't exist. thousands of americans lost their lives. we could have a hearing on that if you'd like. >> ifill: while the benghazi attack was the main focus, secretary clinton also turned her attention to upheaval elsewhere in north africa. >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. the arab revolutions have scrambled power dynamics and shattered security forces across the region. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists who look to extend the
conversation with democratic senator dick durbin of illinois. i talked to the majority whip just a short time ago. senator durbin, thank you very much for joining us. i think one of the main questions i'm hearing is, what does this proposal mean for people living in this country illegally right now? what would happen to them? >> basically it would give them a chance to go through a criminal background check to make certain that there are no problems in terms of their background, to pay a fine, to pay their taxes, and then they would be here in a probationary status where they could not be deported. they could work. and we watched them as a number of other things evolve and progress under the bill. border security leading to green cards, leading to citizenship. >> woodruff: we hear some advocacy organizations saying, wait a minute. even that level of requirement is going to be a disincentive. they're not going to want to sign up if they have to pay a fine and so forth. >> well, i'll tell you. that's going to be part of it. we believe that these people who have lived here for so many years in f
for illegal immigrants already in the country. senators john mccain and dick durbin say it's an issue which both sides are determined to compromise. >> how can we convince the republicans to a path to citizenship? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we've got to understand that. second of all, we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows of an illegal status. we cannot forever have children who were born here, who were brought here by their parents when they were small children that live in the shadows as well. so i think the time is right. >> we are trying to work our way through some very difficult issues, but we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law that we can live with. we're putting as a high priority the unification of families, to make sure that families have a chance to come together. >>> the president has just outlined his own
believes will take place. so did senator menendez and senator dick durbin today. >> peter alexander thank you so much from the white house. we will come back to you later in the show. >>> the other big battles between president obama and republicans are mostly budget focused. on march 1 one month from this friday sequester cuts kick in. it is $1.2 trillion. those are cuts to military and discretionary spending. paul ryan says don't expect a last minute deal or any deal at all. >> i think the sequester is going to happen because that $1.2 trillion in spending cuts we can't lose those. >> joining me now lynn sweet and david who covers the white house for the washington post. good sunday to both of you. let's start with the claim from paul ryan. $1.2 trillion in cuts said to take effect march 1. paul ryan indicating this time there will be no 11th hour deal. >> it is just a bargain position and it is not going to necessarily unfold that way. there are no absolute right now. it is early in yet another chapter of the on going rangles we have been having. so i would put no more into it. it is a
leaders, dick durbin and one of the top republicans in the senate. >> chris, i found it interesting, i don't know what's going to happen with the republican party. we had the winter meetings with the gop and bobby jindal saying the republicans have to stop being the party of stupid. >> that's right. that is what he said. obviously one of the things they point to were a couple of candidates for the senate republicans who talked about rape as legitimate rape. i think the party hasn't dealt with the central issue, and that is while its conservative principles, they still believe and they may be right, it's fundamentally a center right country, i think they get defined by what it's against, gay marriage or taxes on anybody, even people making over a million dollars a year, and they have to find a way, and i think they realize this, but it's hard to do when you're in opposition and there isn't a single leader to express what they're for. and to make a message that is appealing to a lot of people. for instance, on the issue of immigration reform. they got a lot of work to do. i think they unders
like to thank the democratic leader dick durbin. there has not been anyone in america who has fought harder for the so-called dreamers that -- than dick durbin has. and he will continue to be -- have the gratitude of many americans. my friend senator rubio who obviously is a new but incredibly important voice in this whole issue of immigration reform, senator menendez also played a key role and, of course, senator graham, who is uncharacteristically absent from this gathering. as senator schumer mentioned, it is the first step in what will continue to be difficult, but achievable. and i don't think i have to remind anyone the last major attempt was over six years ago. now we will again attempt to commit the remaining resources needed to secure the border, modernize and streamline our current immigration system, and create a tough but fair path to citizenship for those here illegally. and i would like to testify again, security situation, along the southwest border, is not perfect. there remains several areas, particularly in arizona, where people's homes are being invaded, where drug
